CDC Success Rates

This is the most recent data from the CDC. The CDC cautions that it should not be used to compare doctors and clinics.

For more information please see our FAQs.

Where you see a “?” on the chart, a clinic has done fewer than 20 cycles in this category and age range, so the CDC says showing percentages from this small data set would be misleading and unreliable.

They are very committed to providing you with excellent care and communication. Even the from desk lady is so nice and helpful! Our only complaint was with the financial coordinator. She made a comment that we should get a job with Starbucks or amazon to help pay for fertility benefits. We allready have careers, so we were a little Put off by that comment. We called Dr.Duke to let her know and it turned out to be a misunderstanding. She did not mean to come across the way that she did and quickly apologized.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?

Enjoy her positive attitude!

Hard to get ahold of nursing team and answers are usually left unanswered till I reach out to the doctor personally ... Had to reach out to nurses few different times to rush my medication to the specialty pharmacy to have it ready for me to take on my overseas vacation.

Describe your experience with Nevada Fertility Institute.
Clinic strengths Dr Duke is thorough and great communicator and very good at her job.

Hard to get ahold of nursing team and answers are usually left unanswered till I reach out to the doctor personally
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Dr Duke is a compassionate doctor, very easy to talk to and makes me feel at ease it a very stressful time in my life. I felt that she would be the doctor that would ultimately help me get pregnant. It’s a work in progress as we came close at one point during my 4th cycle but ultimately led to a chemical pregnancy
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Unfortunately Dr Dukes are not on the same professional level as she is and are a bit unorganized and noncommunitive. It’s hard at times to get answers from her staff but fortunately but Dr Duke is accessible to me when I need to speak to her directly which is very helpful

How was your experience with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Dr Duke is very knowledgeable and helps me understand things that I may be unsure of. She explains treatments and procedures thoroughly and is always there if I have questions which I often do. She makes eye contact with me and on numerous occasions has held my hand and hugged me to put me at ease after a procedure. Dr Duke also went out of her way to cover the cost of my polyp removal when my insurance would not cover it. Not many doctor would do that, this is why I have been going to Dr Duke now for 3+ yrs. I believe in her and I know I will one day have a positive pregnancy result and ultimately give birth to a healthy baby.

Don’t give up on yourself, because Dr Duke will not give up on you.

Describe your experience with Nevada Fertility Institute.
I think patient care and compassion is their main strength, they're very centered on each individual patient. Weakness seems to be the same as every clinic, just delayed responses or prescription fills at times, but this seems to be at every clinic.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Dr. Duke takes a great deal of her own time to talk over anything you'd like to talk about. On multiple occasions I've had appointments with her that didn't involve ultrasounds and such to talk about treatment plans and options for myself and my husband. Herself and her entire staff recall personal details about me and always remember my name every time I'm there. I've never once felt like she was just trying to push me into a treatment to make money but like she heard my concerns and worked with those to try to help with creating a successful pregnancy for myself. She's very patient and hears me out every time I have an questions/concerns and I appreciate that greatly.
Describe your experience with your nurse at Nevada Fertility Institute. (Assigned nurse: Alicia Dils)
I had initially consulted with Nevada Fertility Institute and had issues with the staff not answering the main phone in the office, not calling back on time, not calling in prescriptions, and issues like these, so I left and went to another clinic. I ended up returning and they have a new facility manager so everything runs smoothly. Their nursing staff and staff in general has always been very kind so now that I've returned there and everything has been cleared up I have no complaints
What specific things went wrong at Nevada Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Dr. Duke is very thorough, running lots of tests and diagnostics to try to get to the root of an issue. She's helped to find a lot of underlying issues with my own fertility complications and was the only doctor to ask for not only a semen analysis from my husband, but labs to determine any factors for him. She was able to find that he had low testosterone and from there prescribed medications to correct that and boost his semen analysis results. We're still undergoing treatment with Dr. Duke and hope she will help us to achieve a healthy pregnancy.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Take the time to have the consult, talking with Dr. Duke will definitely help ease your mind
Describe the protocols Cindy Duke used in your cycles at Nevada Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
We've done multiple strategies, including just letrozole and a trigger shot with this method we had to stair step until reaching the appropriate dose, letrozole piggybacked with gonal F and a trigger shot and also estradiol, then gonal F menopur and a trigger shot with lovenox added due to MTHFR and several clotting factors
Describe the costs associated with your care under Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute.
I did have billing issues the first time I used NFI, but those have since been resolved. Their costs are somewhere in the middle for procedures such as IVF

The strengths [Nevada Fertility Institute] are compassion and ease of scheduling. Everyone is so kind and they are all very friendly. They remember your name and treat you like friends when interacting with you. It's also very easy to get in for an appointment and move things along smoothly. One opportunity I've seen is wait time. Sometimes we had to wait a while after our appointment time but it was never anything awful.... They were easy to communicate with but from time to time difficult to get a hold of. When my medication changed the nurse drove 30 minutes to my home to get me the correct medication which amazed me!

Sometimes we had to wait a while after our appointment time but it was never anything awful.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
From day one Dr. Duke was warm and inviting. She spoke to me kindly and showed compassion when discussing my diagnosis and the side effects that come along with PCOS. She assured me that the issues I've experienced weren't my fault and that was a first for me since other doctors had been very cold about my weight and the other issues that come with it. Dr. Duke spent time with me answering questions and never rushed any consults or appointments I've had with her.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
I interacted with a few different nurses. They were extremely kind and compassionate when speaking with me. They were easy to communicate with but from time to time difficult to get a hold of. When my medication changed the nurse drove 30 minutes to my home to get me the correct medication which amazed me! They were very accommodating when adjusting to changes and went above and beyond to make sure things went smoothly.
What specific things went wrong at Nevada Fertility Institute?
  • Failed to call in prescriptions to pharmacy
How was your experience with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
I did have questions from time to time that weren't answered before leaving and that required me to call and ask for clarification. My medication was switched with no explanation from the doctor and the communication for this came from my nurse, this was the only hiccup I ran into and it was easily fixed and discussed just after the fact. Dr. Duke was always optimistic and kind when working with my husband and I. She takes time to speak to you about concerns and risks and she speaks to you like you are knowledgeable and allows you to ask questions without being frustrated in you asking.
What's one piece of advice would you give a prospective patient of Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Just ask questions. If you are unsure about what is happening or why, ask. You can discuss multiple options with her and she will give you her honest opinion. Don't be afraid to discuss treatment options she is open to many and very knowledgeable.
Describe the protocols Cindy Duke used in your cycles at Nevada Fertility Institute and their degree of success.
I started with letrozole 7.5 mg CD 3-7 and started estrace 2mg twice a day starting on CD 9. We were initially prescribed a different trigger but it changed the night of the trigger to preglyn 10,000. Endometrin 100mg twice a day starts two days after IUI
Describe the costs associated with your care under Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute.
Our IUI with monitoring was $1,300. Our medication cost another $500 and we are still being billed for some bloodwork through our insurance.

Describe your experience with Nevada Fertility Institute.
The clinic is still new but we were there from the start. I can't say anything really negative about the clinic as Dr. Duke has made us feel like we matter and we are not just a number or a paycheck. As the clinic gets more establish, we notice the wait to see her at our set appointment gets delay a bit, but nothing to where I would say it's a bad thing because we always had her taking care of us instead of some nurse from the first place we went to.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
She was present at every appointment. She was the doctor that took every ultrasound, unlike the first one we went to. She's very personable and truly cares. She provided extensive information without overwhelming us. And when she saw I was overwhelmed, she took the time to speak to me on my level.

When we went in during Christmas there were a lot of cute decorations. Good location, right off the freeway.

Describe your experience with Nevada Fertility Institute.
Weakness is communication. It is hard to get ahold of anyone as they don’t answer the phone. You need to follow up as they sometimes forget to call in prescriptions. Also be careful with finance and billing. We were told our insurance covered the treatment and medications which was not accurate and we did not find out otherwise until the Pharmacy called asking for a LARGE payment.
During treatment, were you treated like a number or a human with Cindy Duke at Nevada Fertility Institute?
Dr. Duke is extremely nice. The treatment process wasn’t explained in as much detail as we would have liked and felt like it wasn’t tailored specifically to our needs initially. It get like we were pushed toward IVF based on numbers and less on our personal needs.
Describe your experience with the nursing staff.
Nursing staff would call multiple times to relay the same message. Had trouble reaching them to ask questions on occasion. They were very compassionate but we would have preferred more communication.

Dr. Duke is very compassionate and candid. She presented our options thoroughly and left the decision to us. We would have liked more detail on the process and what to expect, as well as our treatment plan. We didn’t receive a full explanation as to what our IVF protocol would be and the reasoning.

Ask lots of questions.
Describe Cindy Duke's approach to eSET (elective single embryo transfer) vs. multiple embryo transfer at Nevada Fertility Institute.
She recommended transferring two embryos before we even started IVF and encouraged it even when we expressed concern about transferring more than one. We have not decided how many we will transfer if we get this far.

When we first started going to Dr Duke the front office [Nevada Fertility Institute] wasn’t very good at getting back with us but they are so much better now. I think there is a new lady in charge up front so that is nice. other than that everything always goes so smooth ... The nurse Michelle is so sweet and kind. She helped us understand how to do the trigger shot. ... For a medicated IUI it was around $1300 but that did not include the price of the medication.
